Kids love balance games and stacking games because they are a challenge. They also work on children's manual dexterity and speed. At MindWare you will find a full selection of skill games, balance games and stacking games for eight-year-olds. While they are having fun, you are helping them to grow their visual acuity and perception, balance and proportion skills. That's a win/win!
Our original game Q-bitz offers three levels of visual challenges for kids of all ages and is the perfect game to engage multiple playing styles. Fast moving and fun Q-bitz captures the attention of kids and adults alike, while teaching symmetry, fractions, spatial reasoning and challenging memory skills!

Staxis is an exciting stacking game that requires strategy and concentration, while building fine-motor skills. Assemble the 3D frame playing board then take turns rolling the die and balancing wooden playing sticks within the frame. But be careful, because you don't want to knock any down. Staxis is easy for eight-year-olds to learn, yet challenging enough for the whole family.
Skill games come in all shapes and sizes. Bing Bang Bounce uses a ball launcher and target obstacle course to teach kids about trajectories, angle, force and momentum. Knot So Fast gives kids manual dexterity and spatial reasoning a workout as they try to tie knots faster than their opponents in this unique game of skill. While Square Up! challenges players to slide the squares to match their cube shaker - the first one to slap down the frame around the solution wins! Square Up is a skill game that builds spatial reasoning and manual dexterity.
It's hard to find skill games for the youngest players - but the Spot It! series of matching card games helps kids learn while they're having fun. In this speedy eye-spy game there is only one matching symbol between any two cards in the deck. Find it first and you're the winner.
